5 Not to be Missed Coastal Takeout Spots in New Brunswick {Pt. 3}

Welcome to New Brunswick, where the possibilities for fried clams, lobster rolls, fish and chips, and so much more are as endless as the ocean.

From the Acadian Peninsula to the US border, we have so many amazing roadside takeout spots for you to try this summer which is why I’ll be sharing 15 of my favorite roadside restaurants in Southern Coastal New Brunswick here on the blog in a three-part series.

In {Part 3} of this series – here are another 5 of my favourite stops along the New Brunswick coast.

Jonesies Take Out, formerly known as Pennfield Take Out & Snack Bar, has been on my coastal takeout bucket list for years since I first heard about when I started publishing fried clam guides here on East Coast Mermaid. And earlier this summer, when I published Part 1 and Part 2 of these Coastal Takeout Guides, A LOT of you said – you’ve GOT to include Jonesies!

And now I totally get the hype – I ordered the Vick Jones Burger and Dan ordered the Dragon Slayer Chicken Burger. We were both super impressed with how delicious the food was and you can tell they use only the best, highest quality meat. These were the least greasiest burgers I’ve ever had and they were SO good.

I should also note that the customer service is AMAZING. When you place your takeout order, they will ask you for the make and colour of your vehicle and bring it out to you! It’s the little things.

Consider Jonesies 10/10 – mermaid approved! We’ll definitely be back!

Mermaid Favorites: We only recently discovered Jonesies, so I haven’t had a chance to try more than the Vick Jones Burger and fries but let me tell you – it was incredible. I’m also coveting a milkshake next time we go!

Things to know before you go: Jonesies only offers outdoor dining and takeout. There is a really cute fenced in area with picnic tables for you to enjoy your meal on a sunny summer day or in the fog – whatever floats your boat!

A classic for this mermaid. Not that I pick favorites BUT the Quai Aboiteau Seafood Paradise in Cap-Pelé has been a long time favorite of mine. Especially after a day at the beach or a long day in the city when you want to escape to the shore for a feast of lobster rolls and fried clams.

You can read all about my love for Quai Aboiteau here.

And speaking of their fried clams. They are some of my favorite in the Southeastern New Brunswick region and their “Seafood Bucket” is a must if you want to try a little bit of everything our coast has to offer that comes from the sea.

And you can’t visit Quai Aboiteau Seafood Paradise without trying their famous Seafood Caesar! It is absolutely Instagram perfect and delicious, not to mention, a snack in itself.

Mermaid Favorites: My go-to dish at Quai Aboiteau Seafood Paradise is an order of fried clams, with a side lobster roll and the seafood caesar. Trust me on this one!

Things to know before you go: Quai Aboiteau Seafood Paradise is a seasonal restaurant that typically opens from May until October! They offer indoor AND outdoor dining, as well as takeout and have an on-site fish market for you to grab fresh seafood to go!

Another classic in Pennfield, New Brunswick, Comeau’s Seafood Restaurant is just off the highway when you’re passing by the Blacks Harbour/Grand Manan exit on the highway, making it one of our go-to spots to stop for a feast of fried clams after a trip to the island.

Comeau’s are known for their fried clams, their fish and chips, and I have heard that they make an absolutely epic poutine if that’s more your style.

Mermaid Favorites: My top pick is the fried clams, which is always my go-to when we stop by the restaurant!

Things to know before you go: Just like any other coastal takeout known for its fried clams, Comeau’s will often have a bit of a wait once you place your order. Plan to bring your patience! They offer indoor dining and do have some picnic tables outside if you plan to take your order to go!

A beloved restaurant on Grand Manan Island, the Seaquel for us is very much like Cheers in that every time you go, everyone knows your name and you see all kinds of folks you know. Which is why it’s a favorite amongst islanders and tourists, who come from the delicious food and homemade desserts.

It is located just foot steps from the ferry landing in North Head, making it an easy first stop on the island if you’re hungry. They have everything from delicious burgers to fish and chips to pizzas and nachos.

And you can’t visit the Seaquel without getting a serving of fresh homemade pie. Selena, the owner’s pies are absolutely AMAZING, made fresh daily, and I can’t recommend them enough.

Mermaid Favorites: My Seaquel favorite are their veggie nachos and their hot hamburger sandwhich. Yes, I don’t always go for the seafood dish every time! And of course, I can’t go to the Seaquel without getting a piece of Coconut Cream Pie!

Things to know before you go: The Seaquel is open 6 days a week from 7am to 7pm, closed on Tuesday. It IS open year-round making it the perfect spot to visit if you are heading to Grand Manan Island during the fall or winter! Reservations are never a bad idea as it is a smaller restaurant and it can get really busy in the summer!

And last but certainly not least, one of my go-to spots for a lobster roll (and fried clams, let’s be honest) in Shediac is Lenny’s Takeout!

A classic around here – there is a reason why Lenny’s is everyone’s favorite spot whether they live in Shediac or are visiting the area. The food is so good and they have something for everyone.

They’re known for their Fried Chicken (you will spot the giant chicken in front of the restaurant which is a fantastic photo op) but like I said, it’s also a popular spot to go for a delicious, fresh lobster roll or feast of fried clams.

Mermaid Favorites: My go-to order is always, fried clams with a side of lobster roll!

Things to know before you go: Lenny’s Takeout is open year-round, they also just opened a location in Moncton which I look forward to checking out this fall. They have a few tables available indoors for dining, as well as picnic tables and a shaded area for outdoor dining in the summer.

📍550 Main St, Shediac, New Brunswick

And that’s it for this year’s Coastal Takeout Series. If you know of a takeout in Coastal New Brunswick that I should plan to visit next summer – leave a comment, send me an email, or message me on my shell phone!
